To me there is nothing better than finding something on sale. It literally makes my heart skip a beat to find something in the clearance section! There are times that I have been known to purchase a thing or two that I didn't need or ever use just because there was a price break. My husband may say that I do that more often than not. What does he know?? :)
So, I went to Michael's in search of some etching cream for a little project I had in mind. That project sucked, so I will not be discussing it any further. Don't ask!
Anyway, I decided while I was there I would peruse the clearance section. I found this adorable iron on letter. They had a whole container of iron on letters in every letter of the alphabet. They had tons of "J's" so I grabbed one that I liked best. This one:
What does any of this have to do with the "J" letter? Very little, honestly. But, I got home and brought the "J" upstairs to see what I could attach it to. Then I remembered that I would have lots of plain white onesies by the end of the year. Why? Well, my amazing, gorgeous, smart, talented, engineer friend, Katie gave my baby a great gift! She bought me the stickers and onesies for taking his monthly pictures. You know, you saw them here and here so far. Already, I have 2 plain white onesies.
I instantly regretted not buying more of the "J's". How dumb am I for not getting more?? Pretty dumb. I knew I had to go to BRU and I knew there was another Michael's next to that store. To ensure that they would have what I wanted, I called the store and asked them if they had the letters in their clearance area for 29 cents as well. She said they did. She failed to mention that instead of being in separate bins with the appropriate letter on the outside of each bin, making it easy to find exactly what you are looking for... they had one large bin with every letter in one big pile. So, I went through every single letter and bought every "J" they had. Halfway through I started picking up "K's" and "R's" as well (my child's initials). I came home with this...
But, the sale scores didn't stop there...
I bought 2 frames (and instantly regretted not buying 3 as soon as I got home). They were cheap and the frames are hit. But, I plan on spray painting them and adding some interesting art to hang in my dining room. Score!
